Re: Lecht snow 2015/2016

Was up on Monday, roads a bit iffy and the car park could have done with them clearing the snow (people were skidding and abandoning cars anywhere). It was the busiest I've seen the Lecht, but no where near as bad as cairngorm! We just got limited area passes as I was teaching my daughter. Some of the queues were quite long, but if you picked and chose the quietest it was never more than 5 mins. The penguin park is really good for beginners that are 8 and under. We managed to get the last table for lunch, and then had 2 hours in the afternoon - it was busier in the afternoon with a lot of people coming over from cairngorm (and complaining about how busy it was there). The roads back to Inverness were much better on the way back - all black. All in all a good day on the hill - snow conditions were pretty much perfect.

Had our 3rd great day at the Lecht this week - today pretty good virtually all lifts going - though not Buzzard - but appeared a lot of work going on across the road and all looked good to go for Thursday when we left at 5 tonight - though another busy day today everything worked well - queues for beginners slopes peaked between 11 and 2pm the back of the Grouse and Chairlift queues only met a couple of times and the young lifty on the Grouse has worked hard this week to keep things moving- snow today best of week bit hard early on but softened up started to ice again after 3.
Still haven't worked out the pricing system yet been charged 3 different prices for the same set of tickets this week - same in the top bar - but ehh after 17 years it's why we still prefer the 45 minute drive to the Lecht from Aviemore and fit to say the drive from the top if the Bridge of Brown was worth the 7 hour drive from the Midlands alone - red sky above a fluffy white Cairngorm and Monadhliath massifs - perfect end to a great day

The broken lift strikes again. First the Cliffy at Glencoe needs a new gearbox, next the new motor and inverter drive on the West Wall at Cairngorm and now the Buzzard needs a new bit. Great snow on all runs you could get to at The Lecht on Thurs. Just a pity that Falcon was only on briefly in the morning and then back on after lunch. Again, Harrier wasn't running, so you couldn't get to the best bit of the hill. No queues though.
